Maria Turchenkova In a garden Galleri Duerr Affordable Art Fair Stockholm Lydmar

Hidden War

Maria Turchenkova born in Moscow 1987, is currently based between Moscow, Paris and Erbil. Turchenkova is a member of the Getty Reportage Emerging Talent and participated 2013 in the World Press Photo Joop Swart Masterclass in Amsterdam. In 2014 she was selected one of “PDN´s 30: New and Emerging Photographers to Watch”. Her work has appeared in TIME Magazine, NYT, Le Monde, Der Speigel, La Republica, Arte TV and others.

After five years of radio journalism Maria Turchenkova took up photography. Since 2011 her attention has focused primarily on the North Caucasus (Russia) where she conducted a long-term project ‘Hidden War In The Land Of Mountains’ concerning the ongoing armed conflict in the region. Since the crisis broke out in Ukraine, with annexation of Crimea and revolt in East Ukraine, Maria Turchenkova has been working on her project “People’s republic of chaos”, telling about the war in Donbass. At the same time Maria works on her personal project in the Middle East.

Dagestan, North Caucasus, Russia

The Republic of Dagestan in North Caucasus, Russia, with a population of about 3 million, is comprised of more then 40 ethnic groups where ethnic Russians make up roughly 4,5%. Despite the reduction of large-scale military operations 10 years ago in Chechnya and Grozny emerging after decades of chaos under the autocratic rule of Kadyrov, the neighboring Dagestan is locked in a cycle of violence,  and unlawfulness, which affects every family. In fact anyone, can appear under pressure, threat and suspect. While it stays out of news agenda in the central part of Russia, Dagestan today has almost a half of its territory  under a special security regimen (CTO, or “counter-terrorist operation”) and populace endures martial law, rigid curfews and random searches enforced by the Russian military.

Dagestan today is split by seemingly intractable social and religious differences. The gap between the richest and the poorest is enormous. Salafism — a puritanical form of Islam — is largely raising its profile against the Sufi Muslims, complicating the already tangled political and religious picture.

The women in Dagestan have traditionally enjoyed more freedom in comparison to Chechnya, but the spread of violence and radical Islam has changed their lives. While the Russian part of the Caucasus, including Dagestan, is under Russian law, nowadays the women here find themselves suppressed either by custom or Sharia law, exempt from legal support of the authorities and the applicable legal system. As a result they become victims of killings of honor, kidnappings, domestic violence, sexual abuse, torture, acts of terrorism and counterterrorism. Meanwhile the story of the women’s sufferings often stay in the shadows and those who are guilty are rarely punished, as the problems of women are taboo for public discussion in the Caucasian part of Russia.

While with only officially more than 3000 victims of the ongoing armed conflict during past 5 years, Dagestan remains the undisputed leader in the level of violence among the regions of North Caucasus / Maria Turchenkova

Hidden War In the Land of Mountains is a long-term project by photojournalist Maria Turchenkova. This is her first solo exhibition in Sweden. Maria Turchenkova´s photography on top, IN A GARDEN, released in a limited edition and represented by Galleri Duerr at the Affordable Art Fair Stockholm 2016.

Maria Turchenkova´s first solo exhibition in Sweden, Hidden War, will be released at Lydmar December 2, curated by Galleri Duerr. The exhibition continues to February 26.

ABC Charity Filip Cederholm Almedalens Goda Samtal Galleri Duerr Almedalsveckan

Almedalen 3-10 July Empowerment

From a cog in the materialistic wheel to a backpack focused on values. The Swedish non-profit Children’s Empowerment Organization ABC Charity has been published in over 100 newspapers around the world and has received the support of the Nobel Peace Prize winner Desmond Tutu. Founders Filip Cederholm, former advertising photographer, and Ashley Cooper, inspirational speaker, have encouraged businesses, creators, artists and performers worldwide to take responsibility for the way they communicate and the effect it has on children and young people’s values. ABC Charity is creating the first-ever human alphabet – each letter formed by five hundred children in different countries, giving them a day to remember for the rest of their life.

The Photo Art is sold to raise money for local charity projects giving children in need a better start in life. Thanks to ABC Charity partners there are no overhead costs and 100% goes directly to a local children’s charity of the buyer’s choice. So far the letters A–G are available in ABC Charity’s webshop. ABC Charity’s goal is to find partners to help finance the rest of the letters by the end of 2019. During Almedalsveckan, in the midst of Almedalens Goda Samtal (good conversations), Galleri Duerr is showing some of the large format photographs in collaboration with Initiativ Samutveckling and Kultur i Almedalen. The exhibition includes the conversations;

CSR – CREATIVES SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
WEDNESDAY JULI 6, 13.15–14.45 Almedalens Goda Samtal, S:t Hansg. 32, Visby
“Throughout journey´s around the World, working with thousands of children, no matter where they come from it is obvious how  the kid´s are impacted by artists actions and imitate their behaviour.  Where do our values come from? Who gave them to us? Are they benefiting our life experience? If not, how can we change them to benefit both ourselves and the society at large.
Dialogue hosts: 
Photographer Filip Cederholm, inspirational speaker Ashley Cooper, co-founders ABC Charity (this event is highlighted by Sveriges kommunikatörer)

YOUNGSTERS STRATEGIES FOR HEALTH
TUESDAY JULY 5, 11-12, Mellang. 21, Visby
To give young people tools to deal with peer pressure and many times an incomprehensible world 36 young people created the unlicensed method of health guidance “Du bestämmer /You Decide” based on young people’s own ideas about health and what they can do to improve it, constantly evaluated by students involved in different countries. Even if the results show that the participating students develope higher self-esteem, better control of their lives, more health promotion activities and gained access to a strategy they can use on a daily basis, the method is rarely used, why? To achieve good results, it is important that the right conditions are given in this work. Lotte Johansson, who have good results of working with the method will lead the dialogue about the the method, the key´s to introduce the method to your staff and how to reach the students.

Alannah Robins. Space Invaders. Bronze.

The work of contemporary Irish artist Alannah Robins, based in Connemara, revolves around themes of identity, memory, migration and man’s relationship to nature.

Galleri Duerr presents Alannah Robins works in bronze.

Crimean / Åland photographer Natalia Mikkola´s work blurs the boundaries between the real and the imagined. Rather than pure documentation, Natalia strives to convey a specific feeling, atmosphere. Her large format Fine Art chromogenic prints are mounted on plexiglas ®Diasec, produced by a renowned lab in Dusseldorf. Natalia Mikkola’s work has already been acquired by well-known collectors throughout Europe.

Sofia Unicef Matt Miley Galleri Duerr Art Week Kulturnatt Stockholm

Art Week and Culture Night

We believe in cross-cultural meetings, for example when Matt Miley’s strong female trickster is shown together with a single portrait made up of hundreds of unseen children. UNICEF’s For Sofia is every child and no child at the same time, created by the 3D animators behind the films Avatar, Planet of the Apes and TinTin. On Wednesday April 20, Sofia is here to share her story and Galleri Duerr will be starting a ”Silent Auction” in cooperation with Najdron Gallery to benefit UNICEF Children’s Emergency Fund giving aid to affected children. The work up for auction is a portrait photo, size 100 x 100 cm, of UNICEF’s new symbol ”For Sofia” – a collage of hundreds of children from all over the world in one single image. The auction begins directly after UNICEF presents the image at 4 pm and the journalist Nils Resare and digital expert Brit Stakson have spoken. You may make your bid on site at the gallery on Vanadisvägen 29 during Art Week until closing at Stockholm Culture Night on Saturday April 23 at midnight. You may yourself choose if you wish to remain anonymous or if you would like to have your name or your company’s name visible. Click on the following link to learn more about ”For Sofia”.

For each sold piece of Matt Miley’s work Galleri Duerr will be gifting a one-year ”Världsförälderskap”. Why not stop by us this week and become one yourself or as a give away?
